this is why we are all sad.
we watched eric gordon grow, from a bench player, to surprise starter after the cat trade, to a somewhat disappointing 2nd year, to an absolutely awesome 3rd year that seemed to be leading to inevitable stardom.
im going to miss eric more than most clippers that have come and gone. actually, i can't even think of a clipper i have seen leave that i miss more. brand? the kids of the early 00s? cassell? maybe the older crowd can dive deeper into clipper lore, but as far as the modern clippers, rarely has an attachment like this existed with a homegrown product. gordon has to be one of the teams better draft picks in history, even.
eric, we will miss you. what are your favorite gordon moments? the takeover in utah? draft day when we knew we got a steal? let the nation know, this will be our counseling session.
